This volume is a useful record of a congress which correlated international work in a rapidly advancing field of therapeutics and demonstrated American leadership in the new realm. However, only the concise abstracts of the papers are printed, in the three official languages of the conference, English, French and German; the English section, in addition, contains the discussions. Thus the student looking for the full contents of any paper must seek elsewhere. The abstracts of the fortyfive papers are conveniently grouped under divisions on physiology and pathology, fever therapy of miscellaneous diseases, fever therapy in syphilis and fever therapy in gonococcic infections. The volume also contains messages from the White House and from the honorary presidents, Wagner-Jauregg of Vienna and the venerable d'Arsonval of Paris.
